Hey ladies....just an FYI, there's been another loss in the Sept. DDC. I don't know how to post the link to the post, but it's up there.

Why oh why do so many of our precious babies not make it into our arms?

Ugh, this is so sad. I hate this. I really wish that, even if we can't have our own babies back, that it never happened to anyone else again.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

Ugh, it actually sounds like the exact same issue we had with Roald. When I read about lean/thin umbilical cords they said nothing about it really being fatal. Juts that babies with lean cords are small for gestational age. Roald measured small in ultrasound and seemed a tad on the smaller side when he was born.

The doctor told me the cord could get twisted, bent, etc. and since it is so thin and not thick like a normal cord it can cut off the oxygen and blood. That is probably what happened to this woman's baby and Roald. There is basically no Wharton's jelly where the cord meets the baby and it could very easily be pinched off. The cord actually looks like it goes inward and gets thinner as it goes toward the belly as opposed to outward and thicker.

So sad.

Thanks to Mommy2Belle for my Roald blinkie!
